The Man-a tribute(Poem#8-High School Years)

Wings, as black as night 
Casting shadows on light 
Always, always tapping 
Disturbing those napping 
Tapping, tapping at a chamber door 

He never knew why I came 
Only hoping for something sane 
Hoping for lost Lenore?
Nameless here forever more 
For I shall come, ah nevermore 

Nevermore be my name 
And with death I came 
To tame 
His depression, but for him it is all the same 

Now I stand on bust and Pallas 
Exposing nothing but Malice 
He quivers on the ground 
As if listening for the sound 
Of tapping 

The cold air of December 
Cooled each proud ember 
As he soon remember 
The soul of lost Lenore 
Nameless for him evermore 

But he thinks me a demon 
Or, a craven 
But I am only a Raven 
From the Night's Plutonian shore 
The shadows of my wings adore 
But a Raven I am 
Nothing More!

Set this proud man's troubled soul free
For only then shall he be 
With the radiant maiden whom the angel's name Lenore 
Nameless, Nevermore!
